    The COVID-19 pandemic has meant a lower priority for all non-covid work, with potential consequences for morbidity and mortality for conditions such as cancer. This short module discusses several aspects of cancer work during the time of COVID. This includes prevention, screening, the two week wait referral system and treatment in secondary care. End of life care is covered extensively elsewhere on the hub and so is not dealt with in detail in this module.
